Stony Plain lines 53 Street with hockey sticks for Broncos' Parker Tobin funeral - Edmonton Journal

Wednesday, March 27, 2019

Tobin sewed by the grandmother of a friend was draped over it partway through the service, which was attended by hundreds of people.Tobin grew up in Stony Plain and played in nearby Spruce Grove and Drayton Valley before being traded to the Broncos. Throughout the week, tributes have been pouring in for a young man who loved hockey, supported his teammates and had a great sense of humour. Homes along 53 Avenue in Stony Plain were adorned with hockey sticks and ribbons near the Centennial Arena where a funeral was held for Humboldt Broncos goalie Parker Tobin. Shaughn Butts / Postmedia Tobin attended Forest Green School, Stony Plain Central School and was in the 2017 graduating class at Memorial Composite High School, which he attended school for parts of the year while pursuing his competitive hockey career, the Parkland School Division said on its website.While he excelled in athletics and was known for his sense of humour, his dedication and drive was equally apparent in his academic life through his advanced placement courses.Helping out with homework was something Tobin did frequently both in school and with teammates. It earned him a nickname on the bus with his fellow hockey players as "Teacher Tobin," Brandon Ewanchyshyn, Tobin's goalie partner, told the funeral Sunday.Ewanchyshyn - who played hockey, floor ball and other sports with Tobin - said his friend knew how to make light out of dark situations and was famous for his "one-line chirps.""I love you forever, Parker," he said while speaking at the funeral.While many players would listen to music, Tobin would listen to financial podcasts and was considering a career either in business or medicine.Tobin was originally thought to have survived the Broncos' bus collision last week, which killed 16 people. But a Saskatchewan coroner later confirmed he had been misidentified.estolte@postmedia.comtwitter.com/estoltecgriwkowsky@postmedia.comTwitter.com/CGriwkowsky Today's Top Three: Speed limits on residential roads; super-sized jail questioned;...

Park players remember fallen MacEwan teammate - Sherwood Park News

Saturday, March 02, 2019

I've ever met."Lamothe, of Calling Lake, Alta., was a student in the bachelor of science program at MacEwan and in his third year with the Griffins. He also played with the Drayton Valley Thunder of the Alberta Junior Hockey League (2013-2014), the Opaskwayak Cree Nation Blizzard of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League (2013-2015) and the La Ronge Ice Wolves of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League (2015-2016).Lamothe was a graduate of the Vimy Ridge Academy and also played for the Edmonton South Side Athletic Club. The official cause of death has not been released."He was a real salt-of-the-earth guy," said Griffins forward and another Sherwood Park product Nolan Yaremchuk, 25. "He really thought about other people before he thought about himself. I think that Nakehko was so special in so many different ways. For one, he was so funny, he had a charismatic personality, and he was always wanting to come to the rink to get better. His drive for hockey was something I'd never seen before. He loved playing hockey." Grant MacEwan Griffins hockey player and Sherwood Park product Cam Gotaas speaks about the death of teammate Nakehko Lamothe. Greg Southam/Postmedia Network Part Dene and part Cree, Lamothe was a role model for Indigenous youth. He grew up on the Bigstone Cree Nation at Calling Lake and helped run youth hockey programs. Last February, Lamothe invited youth from his community to spend a day with him at MacEwan."He was an incredible teammate and he was very well liked in the dressing room," Griffins head coach Mike Ringrose, a former player for the Sherwood Park Crusaders, said. "He was infectious in terms of his attitude and his work ethic. He was easily the fittest player on our team. Anytime we did any type of fitness competition, he was the one that always came out on top and took care of his body and his diet. He was a leader for us in that regard. On the ice, he was extremely competitive, worked exceptionally hard and was hard to play against. The type of guy you were certainly happy to have on your team and you didn't want to see on the other side."According to teammates...

Convoy evokes Canadian pride in North Bay - Vermilion Standard

Wednesday, March 27, 2019

Monday afternoon.Caron, of North Bay, was waiting in the parking lot at Motion Canada on Gormanville Road for almost 100 vehicles, from small cars to big rigs, to pull in on their journey from Alberta to Parliament Hill with a message for federal politicians. Alexandre Caron "This is about more than pipelines," Caron says. "This is about government. This is about all the provinces having different issues. It's about getting back the political process."The United We Roll Convoy for Canada, a caravan of transports, work vehicles and personal automobiles, left Red Deer, Alta., last Thursday bound for Ottawa and a protest on Parliament Hill Tuesday."The media and the government have divided the provinces," Caron says. "We want to fight for our freedoms and our rights. We want fair government.""We are watching Justin Trudeau slowly strip away every right we had," Sarah Zaldinger, of Timmins, said as about two dozen supporters waited for the convoy to arrive, sharing updates on when the parade would roll into town."He is stripping the future of my children and their children and their children," Zaldinger said. "They are being set up for failure. Their rights, their future, will all be destroyed if we don't stand up now."Although she was not part of the convoy to North Bay, Zaldinger was going to join it Tuesday morning for the rally in Ottawa as part of her own objective of "direct democracy."And direct democracy is possible, she said.Zaldinger pointed to a recent Amber Alert sent to cellphone users across the province ...
